#141 Lack of motivation

Sometimes it is hard to find motivation. I have suffered from loss of motivation for my photography for a while now. I have used my camera – but the result just doesn’t seem to make me excited. They are just boring pictures. I have carried my camera around several beautiful places the last few weeks…

#140 About a Picture

Still working at home, as I have been doing for more or less a year now. Took my camera for a walk on my lunch break and found these glasses, just waiting to be photographed. Wanted to try out my latest ”bargin” – a 90/2,8 Elmar from the 1980:s. A small lens – made in…

#139 The Camera of my dreams

Twenty years ago I had the camera of my dreams – a Nikon F4. It was a beast of a camera – large and heavy. The lenses were even heavier and together they could break anyones back, if worn for a day. Still – this was my dream camera. This was one of those times…

#138 The Hills of Brösarp

The Hills of Brösarp are situated in the most southern part of the most southern county in Sweden; Skåne. The hills are famous in Sweden from several movies and paintings – but more important; they are a really beautiful place to visit. We spent a weekend in Skåne, hiking with some old friends. The weather…

#137 About a picture

We spent the weekend in a small Swedish village called Brösarp. The village is very small – it has about 700 inhabitants – but still we saw at least four small Antique Shops. We did some “window-shopping” in the evening and i shot some pictures. You can see me on the left in the window…

#136 Unique Places

Do we need go travel half way around the world to take photos of unique places? The answer is of course NO. Often the most unique place – at least to the rest of the world – is probably right outside your door. I probably made hundreds of walks around in the small village where…

#135 About a picture

This old turnstile and counter has been around for a while. Numerous visitors to the dance floor at the small island of Valö, has passed it in the summer nights. More than one has probably left with a new partner for life. It all started at the turnstile…

#134 Natures Art

The spring is starting to show it self in our parts of Sweden. It is still only the first days of March, and the weather can change to winter again – but at the moment we have a green nature. Yesterday we found these fantastic cliffs with large icicles everywhere. I can’t remember seeing something…

#133 The Sea

There is something special about the sea. Maybe it is because I have moved away from it? I lived in Helsingborg my first 25 years – a city also called ”The Pearl of the straight” (…at least by the locals). In 1997 I moved away from the sea – and I have missed it ever…

#133 Different Light

What a difference the time of day can do to a picture! I was for a short visit to my birth town Helsingborg, and had the luck of getting a room at the hotel with the most fantastic view of the sea. As I checked in to the hotel, the sun was setting and the…

#132 Project Update

My project “Nature Reserves in Östergötland” is slowly moving forward. To date I have visited 14 reserves – which means that I have almost only scratched the surface. But I must say that the project has been a positive thing in these crazy times. We have hiked in the Swedish nature along with friends on…

#131 An honest review of the Leica M4

I have used a Leica M4 for a while now, and I feel ready to make a review. My M4 is from 1968, but it looks almost like new. I got the silver version with the beautiful Leica inscription on the top plate. I think this is much nicer than the cameras with the red…
